I had a very pleasant stay at La Choza Inn. It has a great location, very close to downtown but off the main street so it is quiet at night. The room was clean and had a great airflow so my rest was very pleasant. The breakfast in the morning was awesome. Coffee, fresh pineapple and watermelon, toast, PEANUT BUTTER... More

I chose this place because I hears it was cheap and breakfast was good, but was a little nervous about the negative reviews. My friend and I, however, loved it here!! It's a quick walk into town and the woman at the front desk called taxis for us and even offered to take us to the natural hot springs herself!... More

La Choza Inn offers cheap accomodation, considering especially the included breakfast. Dorms and bathroom are big enough, altough the bathroom has a bad smell. Unfortunately the staff was very unfriendly and gave us the feeling of disturbing their private life, as the owner family uses the same kitchen as guests do. When arriving we weren't provided with any information and... More

We had a great experience at this hostel. We had booked a private double with en suite and AC. It was clean, had a safe and our only complaint was that the hot water was a little hit and miss. Contrary to other reviews, we found the staff helpful. Breakfast is simple (eggs, fruit and toast) but free and plentiful.... More

When we came here we were a bit worried by the reviews of the place, so we feel it is our duty to set the record straight - The place is great! The rooms are a bit old and small, but they are clean. Our towels were changed daily, and they even replaced our bed sheets once. The entire place... More

I intended to stay for two nights with a friend I met on my travels, we arrived and immediately felt unwelcome. We were literally the only two staying there, so maybe that's why. We asked the man at the front desk about tours and he said "I don't know". We asked about bus times, and again he didn't know, but... More

We were told that this hotel provides laundry for 1usd per kilo. When my girlfriend wanted go to our room they told her she has to pay double or... More

This review is regarding staying in the 4 person dorm. Although my boyfriend suffered little to no bites I was covered in them! Upon further investigation found a few under my mattress/on the bed frame. When we tried to explain the situation they seemed to think we were referring to other types of bugs and informed us if we left... More
